Default My speech is today

My big speech is today. I keep going through waves of calm, nervousness, and very cranky. It doesn't help that I have a head cold and my youngest is also sick. I have a feeling he is going to insist on giving the speech with me. I just want to go back to bed.

Just believe in what you are saying and the rest will take care of itself. Always speak with confidence and you will sail

Lol, my husband would and he tends to nag. It's worth getting the speech over just for the silence.

I have to talk about my cancer experience. I am really nervous cause my family and friends will be there. I actually get more nervous speaking in front of people I know as opposed to strangers. I am odd.

If I had a wife, I wouldn't have girl crush threads to make. I'd just post about my hottie of a wife all the time.

If you can fight cancer, this should be a breeze! Think Pink and Fight Like a Girl! You got this.

I hope that your speech is inspirational for all.

Nerves take on many different forms so I would suggest convincing yourself that you are talking to a bunch of strangers.

Good Luck!

I expected Labo to give advice of this nature. I imagine he pictures people naked all day long.

I'd probably stop talking and go into some fantasy land only to awkwardly snap out of it when I hear someone say "what the f is she doing". I like it. That is my new game plan.

I am happy to read this!

You are an inspiration. I am just reading this thread now...I teach public speaking - had I seen this thread earlier I would have given you some pointers.

But I'm sure you did just fine!
